The Cry Of The Banshee

The Banshee, from the Irish “bean sí” (“woman of the síde” or “woman of the fairy mounds”) is a female spirit in Irish folklore, usually seen as a harbinger of death, as well as a messenger from the Otherworld. In Irish legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die.
